This is Canada::: Activist Alex Hundert jailed for speaking at a university
Social justice organizer Alex Hundert was arrested at his home in the middle of the night by a SWAT team to prevent his participation at G20-Toronto.
Outrageous bail conditions were then imposed, including removal of his constitutional right to demonstrate.
He was invited by a professor at Ryerson University (Toronto) to participate in a panel discussion about social activism. He accepted and was arrested for breach of his conditions.
He's still in jail.
The judge ruled that the university presentation was a demonstration.
We shit you not.
This is Canada.
The level of corporate fascism is so advanced that this passes for normal around here with most folks.
